Social Services and Help for Those in Need
Our Community Resource Specialist can help you find shelter, mental health counseling, job training, food assistance, legal help, domestic violence support or medical help. We also loan Wi-Fi hotspots and books to those living in encampments.

Public Restroom Access During COVID-19 Closure
The Seattle Public Library is providing restroom access at some Library buildings to support insecurely housed and homeless patrons lacking restroom options during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Library Services for the Insecurely Housed
Hotspots can be reserved online by any borrower, but the Library sets aside hotspots specifically for homeless communities to use and share. We periodically visit encampments and shelters to distribute hotspots.
